The librarian of Auschwitz was set in the Jewish confinement camps during WWII. THe new setting gave our hero Dita courage and spirit to spread knowledge amog the children by using the most outlawed item in camp, books. Iturbe tells us a beautiful story full of hardships and pain and made me realize that the Jews of WWII were some of the strongest people that I have ever known. - Kaitlyn, customer age 12
